February. It brings to mind chubby cherubs slinging arrows, cards and candies, flowers and filigree hearts. This month, Rocky Mountain Rollergirls would like to share some love with our latest Member of the Month: Floora Goodtime. Floora came to Rocky in 2017 and quickly made a name for herself, both as a formidable player and an off-skate dynamo leading the partnership committee.
It probably won’t surprise anyone in the league that Floora’s derby name originated in college, where she was known as “Good-time Kelly.” (Man, I’d like to hear some of those stories…). She still lives up to the name, going all out for all things derby. She signs up for every mix-up, plays in all the games, and does it with style. No half-assing here, boutfits and bout makeup are always on point, and no one needs to wonder if she’s having a good time: one look at her smile during games and you know she’s having a blast. While she may be having fun, being her opponent is decidedly NOT such a “good time.”
Floora delivers the mail with Rocky Mountain Rollergirls’ United States Pummeling Service, as well as Project Mayhem, and her teammates love her willingness to do whatever is needed of her in games. As a jammer, she barrels through opposing lines like a bulldozer, laying waste to even the strongest vets. And blocking? Forget it, jammers. You’re going nowhere. Players note her powerful attacks, and her tenacity to just keep going.
Off the track, Floora does an amazing job heading up the partnership committee, bringing in countless businesses to partner with our league to keep our non-profit running smoothly. She meets with vendors, coordinating cross-promotions that are mutually beneficial to both our partners and our league. She also makes sure that Rocky gives back, organizing skaters to attend promotional events, as well as donating tickets and other goods to local charities in the name of RMRG.
The craziest part? She does ALL of this with two boys at home and a work life that the word “hectic” doesn’t begin to describe. If you want to check out the unflagging energy and power that is Floora Goodtime, come see her on February 8th at Rocky Mountain Rollergirls’ home-team opener! This double-header kicks off at 6 pm when Floora’s USPS takes on the Red Ridin’ Hoods. Come check it out and give Floora Goodtime a high five for being February’s kickass Member of the Month!
